Oculyze & BIOTECON Diagnostics sign strategic partnership

renowned food and beverage quality testing provider today announced the signing of a strategic

partnership. The agreement signed at the corporate offices of BIOTECON Diagnostics in Potsdam,

delighted to announce this strategic partnership with BIOTECON Diagnostics as we look to rapidly

build and consolidate the Oculyze BB 2.0 market share and brand value across the world. As a

relatively young and innovative biotech firm, we believe in focusing on our core strengths to

continuously create and roll out key technological solutions that are smart, easy to use and cost

efficient. By entrusting BIOTECON Diagnostics to manage the global distribution of our flagship

product, we are confident of capitalizing on their strengths towards offering the Oculyze BB 2.0 to an

even wider audience. BIOTECON Diagnostics brings a wealth of experience within the area of sales

and distribution by cooperating with leading international manufacturers, and we look forward to the

beginning of a mutually beneficial and successful partnership.”

product and have many common interests with Oculyze. We look forward to further developing this
